The Bindi

Huzzah!

secretsoftheserpent

A Bindi is a bright red dot worn on the forehead by people who follow Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.  Lately it has become a fashion statement in Hollywood.  It is said to represent the third eye or the 6th chakra. This is not a symbol of a married woman, it has more to do with spiritualism and meditation. Where did this red dot come from?  The picture of Alexander the Great should give it away.

Smudging Without Smoke

Good ideas.

Witchery Wednesday

This is without a doubt one of the things we’ve been asked most often over the years.  So many times, so many frustrated people, so many instances of “I really need to sage, but…”

Let’s face it, there are many reasons why you might not want smoke in your house/business/vicinity.  Maybe you have a new baby, a sensitive pet, or a family member with a health risk like asthma or COPD.  Or you might own a business or work in a place where it would not be practical or appropriate to burn things.  Whatever reasons you have are valid.  And there are solutions, we just need to apply a little creativity.

This fire trine forms between Saturn in Sagittarius at 24 degrees, Uranus in Aries at 27 degrees, and the North Node in Leo at 27 degrees.

Trines increase the velocity of energy, so we can expect relevant events affected by these planets and hours to increase in speed and impact. In the case of the node, the head of the dragon where our karmic future lies in the sign of creative expression and fun, now might be a nice time to engage ourselves in the drama of the moment.
